GSA @ Parkside Tiles
The Mackintosh School of Architecture at The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) can be traced back to its inception with the founding of the GSA in 1845 as one of the first Government Schools of Design.
Our distinctiveness reflects in being an architecture school based in an art school where the pedagogical model of studio-based, practice-led teaching is central.
Glasgow provides a unique backdrop for learning and research in architecture. The city is both our primer and our field of operations, and this is apparent throughout our curriculum.
Our studio-based, practice-informed education is recognised and respected within the architectural profession with practitioners consistently rating MSA among the top 3 schools within the UK (AJ 100), with generations of successful and importantly, professionally impactful alumni. This results in high employment amongst graduates who are seen as having a professionally ready skill set, including socially aware, collaborative and productive working capabilities.
